One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost their immunity.
Vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system. It helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infections.
By helping white blood cells function more effectively Vitamin C can strengthen your skin’s defense system and help wounds to heal faster.
Because Vitamin C is water soluble it is quickly excreted from the body. Therefore to maintain high levels of Vitamin C in the body you should take repeated doses several times a day.
While the minimum daily dose required to prevent a deficiency disease like scurvy is small (just 50mg per day) many people take a daily dose of 1000mg and use this dose two or three times per day to boost their body’s immune system against infections.
